Macro exposure metering?

Hi,

I'm going to be attempting macro photography for the first time pretty soon. I've been reading alot about diffraction, however, and have a few questions. I read that at an aperture of, say, f22, at a 1:1 reproduction ratio, you are actually getting a few stops less light, say f32 or even less. If using an off camera flash, a reflector, 60mm micro, and a F5, would I have to manually adjust the exposure? Or will TTL, etc. automatically adjust for this? This will be my first time using slide film, so I know I should bracket anyway to make sure, but I can't help but feel that I'm wasting film. My mom has over 50 different varieties of roses, and since I'm planning on taking pictures of all of them for her, bracketing would use up quite a bit of film! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
